The Planning Department began working with the Sol Legare community on James Island in Summer 2013 to address planning and zoning issues. Planning
staff members have attended multiple meetings of the “Concerned Citizens of Sol Legare” to get to know the residents. In June 2013, the Department
assisted the community in conducting a survey of residents to identify the community’s wants and needs. The survey was not just related to planning
and zoning, but it also gathered useful information on other public service issues such as public safety, transportation, and public works.

Information from the community survey was considered when completing the Charleston County Comprehensive Plan Five-Year Review, which was adopted by County Council in January 2015. In the Comprehensive Plan, Sol Legare is one of many communities within the Urban/Suburban Area of the County that is recommended for “Urban/Suburban Cultural Community Protection” future land use. This future land use designation encourages customized zoning to meet the needs of individual communities.
The next step in implementing this future land use designation is to work with residents to finalize a Community Plan and establish new zoning regulations based on the community’s feedback. The Planning Department attended a meeting of the “Concerned Citizens of Sol Legare” on Monday, February 13, 2017 to gather feedback on the community’s needs and issues for the Community Plan. Planning staff reviewed the results of the community needs survey and did an activity focused on land uses to understand what land uses are desirable in the area and where they should be located.

Over the next few months, Planning staff will be drafting the Community Plan. The Plan will be presented at a future community meeting to gather feedback and suggestions from community members.
